Featured in this Golden Day issue is a special book that pays homage to the Samadhi of Sri Aurobindo and the Mother through a collection of 111 beautiful photographs taken over the years by Gangaram Malwade. The photographs, a few of which are pictured here, were first presented as an exhibition at the Ashram in February 2007. The only words to describe the devotion they inspire are those of the Mother, inscribed memorably on the Samadhi:
